Metro Schools Marks Opening of New School With Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony



Metro Schools celebrated the opening of its newest school, Eagle View Elementary School, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Aug. 16. Students, staff and community members attended the event which included remarks by Director of Schools Dr. Shawn Joseph, Principal Shawn Lawrence and Councilwoman Jacobia Dowell, a performance by Cane Ridge High School's string ensemble and a tour of the new school building.

Metro Schools is proud to welcome Eagle View as its newest addition to the Cane Ridge Cluster. Metro Schools began construction of this building in 2016 to meet the growing academic needs in Southeast Nashville.

Principal Shawn Lawrence, faculty and staff are looking forward to a student-centered school environment responsive to the most sensitive needs of all our students. Through this responsive learning environment, the school will be focused on ensuring that all students are middle-school ready and prepared for lifelong success. The vision of Eagle View is to provide a safe and inclusive learning environment that ensures all students receive high-quality, personalized instruction for academic, social and emotional growth to develop well-rounded life-long learners.
